a victory in their fight against israel and we heard from some of the leadership of that palestinian faction that times of the arab spring have changed the palestinian/israeli conflict. we expect that to have a profound impact on the situation here in gaza and across the region. they are certainly trying to spin this in a way where to their people they are coming out victorious and prepared for any possible confrontation down the road. tinge ordinary people here in gaza when you speak to them as we have throughout the course of the day have been telling us without a comprehensive solution that history is deemed to repeat itself. without a solution to end the problems of the israeli palestinian conflict, particularly here in gaza, expect it to be another round of violence somewhere on the horizon. >> ayman, thank you, reporting from gaza. martin fletcher is standing by now in tel aviv. what's the feeling there today 20 hours after the cease-fire? are people feeling good about this? describe that. >> reporter: to be honest, alex, i don't think people are feeling too bad about it. i think they
by -- met by some tough language from the security council. not from the government, israel or anyone. it was the security council under the charter of the united nations that put that pressure. of course we know that this system worked extremely well. it was 100% performance as a matter of fact. it's not bad for any u.n. organization to get the task and then i think it's probably the only one which succeeded to make it 100% performance. so the -- that means that both destruction capabilities and the monetary capabilities were forcefully placed. so everything looked shiny and fine until the u.s. government -- it was in spring of 1997, through madeline albright made the statement at george mason university, well, it looks like sanctions are -- disarmament is going well. if it goes well we can still not lift the sanctions which was a condition under the security council. sanctions -- so we can't lift the sanctions until saddam hussein is removed. so that came my obsession with the regime change. that, of course, destroyed in the sense the institution and operations. so i think that expe
in from world leaders. israel offered congratulations. >> i want to congratulate president obama on his reelection. i think the united states of america again demonstrated why it's the greatest democracy on earth. the security relationship between the united states and israel is rock solid. >> reporter: we're even hearing from the taliban and pakistan saying, you know what, obama and romney are pretty much the same enemy, that they will continue to fight. for president obama, who just won his next term, he gets his first order of overseas business, at least courtesy of british prime minister david cameron. he was interviewed today on the border of jordan and syria. during this interview, he said, we must do more now. >> one of the first things i want to talk to barack about is how we must do more to try and solve this crisis. >> reporter: he wants these two nations together to put more pressure on the assad regime and do more to aid the rebels. back to you. >>> president obama's reelection wasn't front-page news in every newspaper today. here are a couple from outside the museum. the fr

it is vitally important we cast our candidates on -- -- that we support the nation of israel. support the typical definition of marriage between a man and woman. host: is this something you were given to read? caller: "usa today." i am just finishing up your yen physical values. this november 6 prayer with me that america will remain one nation under god. that is written by dr. billy graham. i want to echo that, because i think we really need to focus on getting our eyes back on god, and i think mitt romney is really a constituent to embrace those physical values and will work for us. host: did you always feel that way about mitt romney? throughout the whole campaign? caller: yes, i did. i think america needs to read between the lines. many appeared to promote what president obama says and does. i think it is unfair, and i think it is biased. i think people that read the paper and view the t d need to read between the lines and understand what the president and as candidates is really saying. i believe it romney, if you look carefully at what he supports and opposes does support any o
be built. i spoke earlier today with the consulate general for the state of israel in philadelphia offering my support and concern for the unfortunate circumstances that are taking place in the middle east now in which hundreds of bombs have -- rockets have been shot at israel. some of its largest cities as the targets. and this is a matter in which obviously much high levels in our government, there have been communications and the assurance that israel has the right to defend itself. but i think that we can see in this russia trade agreement that if we can get to the point where there can be relationships that are built on self-interest and economic development, that we can put the weapons aside and move towards a circumstance in which people are focused on economic activity. we see in this crisis a circumstance that we hope will resolve itself. obviously we stand with our ally, but we also hope for a day in which peace will reign and economic opportunities. i agree with david dreier, really is a way in which eventually we can create a circumstance in which people will not have the necess
to supporters on capitol hill. she was joined by representative steve israel and congressman steny hoyer of maryland. >> it is going to be a good evening. our president is going to be our president. steve israel is assuring me we will pick up states in the house and yes, we think we're going to take back the house. i am so pleased to be year. -- to be here. we are fighting for the priorities our country knows are important. for the values that this country knows is critically important. for investing in education, in growing our jobs in america, in investing in protecting our environment and investing in the health care of our people. americans believe lyonesse priorities. i want to congratulate my friend steve israel for the extraordinary job he has done. i have gone through this country, i have been in almost 90 districts, 89 districts in this country. campaigning with extraordinary candidates. some incumbents khomeni challengers. they are extraordinary people who will do an excellent, outstanding job as a members of the congress. steve israel has set an objective. he has worked hard a
they say they're not comfortable with the presidency of on israel. -- the presidents stance on israel. >> what about voted on election day in the state of florida? is the state prepared, and could there be another possible repeat of what happened in 2000? >> statistically you would think of it do not favor something -- like what happened in 2000 again, but of course it could happen again. secondly, the big concern is the fact that we have historically long ballot. in florida, as in many states, a lot of those people but only in the major elections. they are paying attention to the race between president obama and mitt romney. there will vote on tuesday. when they get to the polls on tuesday it will be surprised because the ballot includes many judicial elections. it includes 11 proposed constitutional amendments. the ballot is very long, and there is no time limit on how long the person can take to boats. some election supervisors indicate they are concerned about the possibility of long lines of the polls on tuesday, which could lead a late night for results. to go we of heard some l
and the palestinians but earlier today israel shot down another hamas rocket aimed at tel aviv. israeli air strikes continue against hamas strongholds in gaza. divers searching for the two missing workers from an oil platform that caught fire in the gulf of mexico on friday have recovered a body near the site. four other workers are hospitalized with severe burns. president obama has arrived in thailand. his first stop on a three-day trip that includes the first visit to myanmar by a u.s. president. outspoken new jersey governor chris christie has been getting around. last night he was on saturday night live. he thanked his state's rescue and relief workers for their efforts during hurricane sandy. he then offered a critique of super storm tv coverage. >> i also do not want to thank the reporters that put themselves in danger by walking into the middle of a hurricane with their cameras. we don't need you to tell us there's a hurricane. we have windows. >> osgood: here's the day's weather forecast. mostly clear and mild pept in the pacific northwest where they're getting an early taste of winter. th
to israeling changed his mind? >> there was a significant intrigue going on even as these candidates are rumbling, stumbling and bumbling around the country in the last week if i can borrow your keith jackson refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, let me inject. i've not plugged into the romney campaign like "the politico" guys. i know about christie. i'm skeptical of the idea that there ever was a moment when romney was going to pick christie for this. it seems cute that it's coming out at this moment. jonathan i want to ask you about demographics heading in to this tuesday. seems like there's basically a test that we're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a
important foreign policy has become to them and particularly their strong support for the state of israel. i wouldn't say every mailing we send, just about every mailing we sent out mentioned either obama removing jerusalem from the capital of israel and reinserted it or mentioned his call for israel to return to 67 border or mentioned the fact that his administration had slow walked sanctions against iran. those issues have real resonance among them. >> jonathan is one of washington's most thoughtful journalists. he's been covering this steek or it for a long time, and thank you, ralph, for your excellents. he's the money and politics report enand the past president of the national prez club. what did you see yesterday what does it mean for the country and. >> well, in 2010, we saw the secret money in the races took control of the senate and house. and all service said, it's going to be a foreshadow in the 2012. it wasn't. obama was able to raise as much money with romney. romney had help with the super political action committees and outside groups. the money was even. obama wasn't swamped
their strong support for the state of israel. i wouldn't say every mailing we sent out, but just about every mailing that we sent out mentioned either obama removing jerusalem as the capital of israel from his platform and then belatedly reinserting it, or it mentioned his call for israel to return to '67 borders, or it mentioned the fact that his administration had slow-walked sanctions against iran. and those issues have real resonance among pro-israel evangelicals. >> jonathan saw hasn't is one of washington's most thoughtful journalists. he's been covering this sector for a long time, and thank you, ralph, for your comments. he is the money and politics reporter for bloomberg, and he's also the past president of the national press club. what did you see yesterday, and what does it mean for the country? >> well, in 2010 we saw all this secret money into the races, and the republicans took control of the senate and the house, and all observers said this is just going to be a foreshadowing of 2012. it wasn't. obama was able to raise as much money as romney. romney had help with some of the
one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if you have the middle class as people who make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, romney won that group narrowly. the middle class is up for grabs but romney did well enough there but just n
. one issue that resonates, especially in south florida is the question of israel. jewish voters traditionally are registered as democrats, but rabbis have been asking questions it their congregations about the president's commitment to israel. florida has the second largest jewish population outside of new york. there are 12 million registered voters in florida. both campaigns have spent a record $192 million to try to win their votes. the prize here, 29 electoral votes. savannah? >> kerry sanders, thank you. >> all right. let's go to colorado now. nine electoral votes up for grabs in that state and nbc's kristen dahlgren is in centennial this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. the candidates have been here dozens of times over the past few months. president obama won colorado by 9% back in 2008, but this could be a very different story. all of the polls within the margin of error. now, most coloradoans have already voted in early voting. we can't tell you the count, but we can tell you the breakdown, that is 37% of voters so far have been republican,
right, my top issue is that there's all this controversy about whether or not israel is going to go to war with iran. and when president obama spoke about the big yellow bird, i don't think he was talking about the big yellow bird, i think he was talking, you know, big bird on tv, i think he was talking about china. china, you know, chinese people, oriental people are referred to as yellow. china has the largest population on earth, a billion people. they have so many people that they force women to have abortions. they have no respect for human life at all. and china is friends with iran. china is trading partners with iran. if we help israel go to war with iran, then we're going to have to deal with an angry china, and i think that's a really big problem, and we have to just put a stop to it and negotiate peace. >> well, as i said in the opening statement that, um, i really feel that our biggest problem is the deficit, but i believe that the reason why we haven't been able to, um, to lower the national debt is because our political system is broken. and we need to fix it, or this
evidence of that. of t dspite? >> of the dispute? >> ifill: well, richard murdoch. >> israel, rished murdoch became almost the third rail of local politics. even though what he said, you know, was consistent with-- it was-- and not indefensible. there appeared to be a callous, almost disregard for the terrible experience of being raped, let alone a pregnancy coming out of that rape. >> you talk about the gender issue. it's always important to stinguish between married women and single women. >> that's right. >> married women were very strongly for republicans, single women very strongly for democrats. the sociological trend over the past 20 years is there are a lot more single people, men and women. so the numbers just get bigger as the country goes into what they call living solo. >> woodruff: and it calls to mind the strategy that obama very transparently employed, talking about planned parenthood, talking about the position of the republicans on-- not just on abortion but on contraception, and there was a lot of criticism-- has be a lot of criticism-- >> i've heard criticism from
in and get something done. representative peter king and steve israel are requesting the army corps of engineers and the energy department take over repairs from the long island power authority. known as lipa whose work they have called abysmal. more than 15,000 people don't have power. what's worse is the lack of answers. >> some of us who actually get power, once that grid is turned on and our power is turned on we still don't have power because most of our electrical boxes are under water. need to get electricians and power lines put in because it was under water. it's time we need the power on so we can get our lives rebuilt. >>lipa hope to have 9 a% of the power restored by tuesday. but about 65,000 customers have such severe flood damage it will take extensive repairs before they can begin restoring power. new questions this morning about whether four americans could have been saved from the terror attack in benghazi. according to the pentagon's newly released time line. a special op.s team in croatia was told to prepare to deploy 2 to 4 hours after the attack started. the tea
